Green Tea Sesame Sauce

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, finely minced
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
2 tablespoons chives, minced
1 teaspoon fresh chili pepper, minced
Salt and white pepper to taste
Whisk ingredients until smooth - Sauce will last in a tightly closed container, in the refrigerator, up to 3 days - Use the sauce to marinate uncooked foods for up to 24 hours ahead. Brush sauce on while barbecuing and/or serve the chilled sauce with the meal. Play with ingredients to add your own touch.
